Bathurst Multicultural Storytelling Festival has launched a Bathurst competition across four media formats!

Life At Home

We will host a feedback workshop on Zoom at the Bathurst Readers’ and Writers’ Festival on Saturday May 2 at 11am to 12 noon.

So you can get comments on your work and improve that for later submission to the competition, if you want to…

Please send your stories on the theme “Life At Home” by Friday May 1 so we can prepare the session.

Send a link or file (see entry form below) to the workshop host Jock Cheetham by May 1.

*   Photo (1 or 2 photos: hi-res jpg, 1Mb-10Mb)
*   Writing (500 words: Word doc)
*   Audio (90 to 120 seconds: link to SoundCloud or equivalent)
*   Video (30 to 90 seconds: link to YouTube upload or equivalent)

Or bring your links/content to the Zoom session on Saturday May 2.

All welcome to listen or participate…

Photography, writing, audio and video will be judged on criteria of technical skill, storytelling and emotional impact.

Competition deadline: June 12. 

Get your entries in now to have them shared online and via the #LifeAtHomeBathurst hashtag on social media.

Early bird entries go in the draw for a special “best of” award in early and late May!
